  • 3 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Each Egg
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 4 Tbsp Butter Melted
  • 3 1/4 Cups All purpose flour

  • 1 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 4 Tbsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • Cream Cheese Icing
  • 4 Oz. Cream Cheese
  • 4 Oz. Butter Unsalted
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Pound Powdered Sugar

Instructions

  1. Dough 

    1. In mixing bowl attached with bread hook add milk, yeast, sugar, salt, egg and butter. 


    2. Mix until all ingredients are combined. 


    3. Add flour and mix until a ball forms. The dough will pull away from the sides of the bowl. 


    4. Cover with plastic wrap, place on counter and let double in size. This will take 30 min- 45 min. 


    5. Punch down the dough and place on a floured surface. 


    6. Roll out into a rectangle shape and about 1/4 inch thick. Trim edges a bit to clean up the rectangle. 


    7. Spread entire dough evenly with cinnamon sugar filling (method of preparation follows) leaving a 1/4 inch lip on the long side. Brush with water so it will adhere to the dough when completely rolled up. This will keep the cinnamon roll from falling apart when cutting and baking.
